All the children and staff were invited to dress up as a character from the famous series of books.

Fens Falconry paid a secret visit to introduce their falcon and Rambo the owl, who let the children of each class draw him.

The children were then treated to a flying display in the sunshine on the school field.

Lara Gourley, from the school, said: "All of the children loved the surprises and went home with some magical memories."

Learning throughout the morning included music lessons where the children listened to the music of Harry Potter and English where they wrote timetables for Hogwarts lessons.

At lunchtime the children were sorted into the Harry Potter houses by Kinderley's very own talking sorting hat.
